There may be no better location in the White Mountains for a ski home. With a Ski trail 50 feet from the building site , direct access and views of the Pemigewasset river, and a cross country path for a property line - this piece of land truly has all the recreational offering you could want in a resort life style.      * BUT!! – The sale is subject to third party approval.* What does that mean to a laymen? It is up to the sellers lender to bless the conditions and terms of the sale, and agree to a negotiated pay off , of the current mortgage. The seller owes more than the asking price, and his lender requires the opportunity to review the sellers: hardship, request for debt relief and current assets and ability to bring money to closing.   * How long can that take –and what does a buye...

New Hampshire's Rugged good Looks. I can see the forest for the trees, I took my bag lunch for a short ride today to remind me what is outside of my office walls. The Kancamagus National Scenic highway designation is well deserved. Enjoy the views of my picnic lunch today.                        I didn't mind a cold lunch with this great view. It was hard to get this shot facing due south into the sun, but the avalanche area across the valley was worth the photo risk. A western shot reminds me that this is miles of wilderness. In fact the route through the mountains is devoid of any man-made structures for 35 miles...gas up before you head over the Kancamangus Pass (one of the highest elevation drives open all year round).

South Peak Resort at Loon Mountain, New Construction breaks ground. Once the Post and beam designs have been approved by the architectural review board Cargill Construction got right to work. Foundation poured...Ridged Foam board (pink styro board - insulating the basement) will be finished with a stone product yet to be chosen. A New Adirondack home under-construction on South Mountain Road at Loon. I asked the boys to move the porta-john out of my camera shot - (thanks guys). Progress...and some snow has fallen during the initial construction phase, the framers' hope to be  working under cover in another month (or sooner).     The first Floor perimeter walls are up, and some of the exposed post and beam is taking shape, the second floor will come next...and the roof shortly after.

What a beautiful day to get out into the woods...Big Views and hemlock trees weighed down with dense snow.                 The groomed trails make a cross country ski so easy - smooth and quiet in the woods.     The view north peeking through the trees was really nice - with the blue sky backdrop.    The clouds are starting to roll in again time to head for home...before the snow socks me in. You can see some of the Condos in the Village of Lincoln New Hampshire...to see more try the MLS search function at the bottom of this post.

I was recently ask by a client to give him some historic data to support the notion we were in a real estate recovery for my market area. With an idea where prices were headed in the up-coming months or years. I chose one segment of the market so as not to dilute the findings, with one sale or one bad year. I chose to look at condominium sales as reported to my MLS for the past ten years. This was for a wide spread price range from a low of $50,000 to a high of one million (this excludes deeded timeshare condos). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________-   Condominiums Lincoln & Woodstock NH       # sold Average $  yr 2000 22 $104,000  yr 2001 21 $110,000  yr 2002 32 $136,000  yr 2003 40 $143,000  yr 2004 90 $166,000  yr 200...

As another weekend unfolds the White Mountains of New Hampshire, have experienced record snow fall and the record number of skiers have toppled the old ticket sales numbers. Over the Martin Luther King Jr. three day weekend Loon mountain had a Saturday sell out with ticket sales exceeding 8,200 (at $70/ticket that was very good day). What does this mean for the region and the future? Additional Terrain, trails and lifts are scheduled for the South mountain side of Loon in the coming year (designs for a new learning center were recently unveiled as well). While showing homes at South Peak resort, I noticed many skiers still haven't discovered the new peak on the south side (in it's 3rd season of operation). The Lift lines on South Peak remained minimal during this sell out period. The ow...

With 17 new inches on Tuesday and 7 more last night...we're up 24 inches this week alone. The Lincoln Express chair lift is located on the South mountain side of Loon ski resort, where we have built 12 new slope side homes. See some of the beautiful Adirondack style ski homes at our "South Mountain on Loon web site". This is one of the homes under construction...and at the merger of two of the private home owners trails..ski from your door to the lifts and at the end of the day ski home to your door...no better location for a ski house in all of New England and just two hours from Boston.

  Sometimes one sale can have a greater effect on a subdivision than "Just" a single transaction. Families are still willing to buy the right location when they see the long term value of that decision. Yesterday’s closed sale dispels any concerns for this slope side subdivision at Loon Mountain in Lincoln NH. Pending site with a ski trail on the property closed for $415,000.   Site 38 has been pending for a month and is in the books now.     Custom Adirondack Home across the street called “Moose Run” was completed last year and also offers ski to your door access from the Loon mountain slopes. Designed & Built by our in-house contractor Cargill Construction We feel this exclusive recreational neighborhood has held its value very well and compared favorable with other New England resort...

The new Tower Guns they are using on the slopes to make snow amount to space age technology for the ski industry. These guns can sense a change in Temperature or humidity, and adjust the water and air pressure accordingly for the best man-made surfaces you'll ever ski on. Not waiting for Mother nature to do here part, has allowed loon to Open over 230 acres of terrain with very little snow in your back yard. Just to the left of this beautiful home, you'll see the snow gun doing it's thing. The Bridge allows the home owners on the South mountain slopes to ski home (even if they live on the other side of the road) the home owners trail lead to a brand new lift...so if you live here you can ski home and take your own lift back to the public ski area. The home in this shot was build by my p...
